[FONT="Century Gothic"][CENTER][SIZE="5"][COLOR="Red"][B]Introducing Hardball Heroes in OOTP 9 - A Total Sports World Production[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT="Garamond"][CENTER][B][SIZE="4"]Brought to you by:[/SIZE][/B][/FONT] [IMG]http://www.totalsportsworld.net/images/TSWlogo.jpg[/IMG][/CENTER] [B][COLOR="DarkGreen"][SIZE="2"]3 longtime Commissioners combine to provide a retrospective look at baseball in the Golden Era[/SIZE][/COLOR][/B] [CENTER]Hardball Heroes, the latest baseball offering from Total Sports World (TSW), takes you back in time to a place where baseball was always played in the afternoon, where it was a game, a passion....a true American Pasttime. Hardball Heroes takes you back in time, to the mid-1930s, where all the major independent leagues of the early twentieth century played. A combined collaboration of over 17 real life years (and countless simulated seasons!) of Commissioner experience is provided to those who join what will become the largest OOTP online world ever created in a historical/fictional setting. [B]The Current Year:[/B] It's 1936, the season is just finished, and as a further result of the Great Depression, teams are struggling to keep fans in the seats, and owners in the front office. General inquiries have been sent by the League Commissioners out to well known businessmen and baseball enthusiasts (You!). [FONT="Palatino Linotype"][B][SIZE="4"]Your Commissioners: [/CENTER][/SIZE] [IMG]http://www.totalsportsworld.net/images/Cooley.jpg[/IMG] [SIZE="3"]"The General" Mark Cooley (aka: Cooleyvol)[/SIZE][/B][/FONT] Mark has been a longtime user of OOTP, going back to OOTP 2. While he has been in a variety of online leagues, his passion was fictional/historical type settings, which culminated in Glory Days Baseball, a historical league set in 1920 that he ran through the mid-30s. Mark is thrilled to put together Hardball Heroes, and created the movie and logo present in this announcement. Mark is the Founder of Total Sports World, and currently runs the highly successful Gridiron Glory, a Bowl Bound College Football league, with 119 active human owners currently in it. [FONT="Palatino Linotype"][B][SIZE="3"][IMG]http://www.totalsportsworld.net/images/LeBlond.jpg[/IMG] James "LB" LeBlond (aka: eMLBCommish)[/SIZE][/B][/FONT] "LB", as he's known, has been a lifelong gamer, having run all kinds of leagues with his local friends back in his grammar school, high school, and college days. What LB really wanted was the ability to run a complete league with all teams owned. That became a reality as the internet evolved. After spending 1995 through part of 2000 learning how leagues were run, and what kind of effort it took to run one well, LB's dreams to be the ultimate entertainer became a reality as Electronic Major League Baseball (eMLB) was born in July of 2000. To this day, eMLB continues to operate, 8+ years and 17 seasons later using the same database of players and history. LB has been an OOTP Fan since OOTP 3. While he admits to being more of a modern baseball guy, LB is very knowledgeable about baseball's past, and excited to support this venture. LeBlond is a Board of Director and Director of Marketing for Total Sports World. [FONT="Palatino Linotype"][B][SIZE="3"][IMG]http://www.totalsportsworld.net/images/Dills.jpg[/IMG] Mike Dills (aka: USBACommish)[/SIZE][/B][/FONT] Mike is another example of a dedicated Commissioner. Having inherited USBA from Scott Fite almost 2 1/2 years ago, Mike has solidly positioned USBA to be one of the best fictional leagues available in the OOTP world. Another fan of OOTP since OOTP 2, Mike is proud of the almost 6 years of USBA's existence, and looks forward to its continued tradition and longevity. Mike is a Board of Director for Total Sports World.
